A Prince George’s County resident was crossing the street in Chevy Chase Maryland when a driver struck her with his vehicle. This collision caused a broken wrist with apparently permanent injury. Our client, a federal employee and mother, was denied compensation for her injuries by the insurance company. But Matt Trollinger pursued her rights in litigation. At the deposition of the at-fault driver, Matt conducted a thorough examination which led to the driver admitting his prior statements about the accident were not true. The driver admitted that, although he originally said the woman darted out in front of him from parked cars, he actually saw her just before the collision — just after he was looking over his shoulder. This helped Matt to get his client a settlement of over six figures for her injuries.

* Many attorneys, insurance companies, and clients call an incident when someone was injured an “accident.” For this reason, our website uses this word. But an incident is not really an "accident" if there were rules in place to keep us all safe, yet someone chose not to follow those rules — and, as a result, someone else was hurt. When you speak with Trollinger Law, you'll find we talk instead in terms of "crashes," "collisions," etc.
